    As a former gourmet chef of Albanian and Jewish descent who raps over a Tracy Chapman guitar riff at most of his shows, Action Bronson has always been a unique presence in hip-hop. Never has this been more pronounced, though, than at last week’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Despite the chaos that goes along with an estimated 2,300 rappers, bands and artists converging in a city with less than 900,000 residents, SXSW isn’t quite the free-for-all, indie-championing event that it advertises itself as.

    20 Of The Best Graffiti References In Hip-Hop

    Along with emceeing, DJing and breakdancing, graffiti is one of the four fundamental elements of hip-hop, and it's been an integral part of the culture since the beginning. Films such as Charlie Ahearn's Wild Style and Stan Lathan's Beat Street helped define this vivid form of expression in the 80s, and it's since grown into an international phenomenon. You'll find graffiti art in most corners of the globe at this point.

    When sampling, producers usually try to find obscure and/or rare source material to draw from, both because they don't want listeners to associate their final product with a song they already know, and because they'd likely to avoid copyright issues. But sometimes, out-of-the-box ideas will come to fruition, and lead producers to sample from well-known, but unexpected places.

    Only a handful of artists release as much content as Curren$y does. Some can match the quantity, but none can top the quality. Spitta Andretti is known for releasing album-quality mixtapes at a constant rate, giving fans all they can digest. 2013’s New Jet City was one of the hottest mixtapes of the year, and his latest offering The Drive In Theatre doesn’t disappoint either.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of open rap letters from Jay-Z). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.

    Lets be real, most of us can't even afford to buy CDs at retail value. At least that's what we tell ourselves as we pirate just about every record we can get our hands on. That being said, there are some things in life that just aren't accessible for free on the internet no matter how badly we want them to be. One of those things is food. Another is live performances. "Bullshit! 50 is streaming his SXSW performance for free on March 11th," you might say. Well, first off, stop being a smart ass. Second, while it's true you might be able to "see" Mr.

The ones who don't believe every hip-hop video has to be about models sitting on the hood of a rented car.
